Future Rockland Pride Center gets state money

NYACK – The future Rockland County LGBTQ Pride Center, slated for construction in downtown Nyack, now has the financial support of the state with a $200,000 grant secured by State Senator David Carlucci (D, Nanuet).

Pride Center Executive Director Brooke Malloy said the funds will greatly help in advancing the project.

“Having the support of our elected officials and our greater communities is critical when we are trying to change the culture of Rockland County and all the places that we live,” Malloy said.

Carlucci said it is important for the community to join with the effort.

“It is so important that we support the good work being done here in our community with the actual pride center to be a visible beacon for hope and for future prosperity for everyone in our community and to make sure that our community that our community is saying loud and clear that we will not accept bias and discrimination anywhere,” the senator said.

On the northern side of the Hudson Valley, in Kingston, the LGBTQ Center has been operating for several years.
